The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is giving away a signed copy of Hillary Clinton's latest memoir, Hard Choices. In an email sent out to the DCCC's list, Nancy Pelosi says the book will be given to someone who signs an e-card thanking Clinton for serving this nation.
"Hillary has just released a fabulous memoir on her time serving as Secretary of State," reads the email that sounds like a promotion.
"As the title suggests, 'Hard Choices' offers an extraordinary glimpse into the tough calls that she confronted on behalf of the American people. On a whole range of issues -- from climate change to income inequality to women’s rights -- Hillary reveals unique perspectives informed by her exceptional experience. It’s a real treat. If you haven’t picked it up, you should.
Now Hillary’s traveling around the country talking with Americans about the book and sharing the lessons she learned as our top diplomat. It’s great to see her letting her hair down, speaking her mind, and letting the chips fall where they may.
If you’re as grateful as I am to Secretary Clinton for her service to our nation, click here to sign my note letting her know just how much we appreciate her inspirational example.
Oh, and I almost forgot the best part!
If you add your name today, you will be automatically entered to win an autographed copy of Hillary Clinton’s new book, “Hard Choices.”
The email is signed, "Thank you for being a part of this. Nancy Pelosi."
